SpaceX Logs 100th Successful Launch And Orbit

SpaceX Has Landed A Falcon First Stage Rocket Booster 63 Times

On Saturday, October 24 at 11:31 a.m. EDT, 11:31 UTC, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launched 60 Starlink satellites to orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Falcon 9’s first stage previously supported the GPS III Space Vehicle 03 mission in June 2020 and a Starlink mission in September 2020. Following stage separation, SpaceX landed Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which was stationed in the Atlantic Ocean. The Starlink satellites deployed approximately 1 hour and 3 minutes after liftoff. This mission also marked the 100th successful flight of a Falcon rocket since Falcon 1 first flew to orbit in 2008.

Airborne 10.23.20: P2010 TDI Cert, OSIRIS-REx, MultiGP Championships

Also: F-22's Intercept Russians, WAI Scholarships, Honeywell-Pipistrel, Dufour Demo's eVTOL

TECNAM has received a Type Certificate for the P2010 TDI from EASA. The P2010 TDI certification adds the Diesel/JetA1 engine to the family of Avgas and Mogas-powered TECNAM aircraft. The P2010 airframe, with its composite fuselage design and the all-metal wing and stabilator, has proven to be a good match for the Diesel engine. The "P Twenty-Ten" now offers the flexibility offered by the use of Diesel/JetA1 fuel and the low operating costs provided by the dual FADEC-controlled Continental engine. NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft unfurled its robotic arm Tuesday, and in a first for the agency, briefly touched an asteroid to collect dust and pebbles from the surface for delivery to Earth in 2023. This well-preserved, ancient asteroid, known as Bennu, is currently more than 200 million miles from Earth. Benn

Power, Pulchritude and Performance: Flight Testing the Pipistrel Panthera-Part 3

By Jim Campbell, ANN CEO/Editor-in-Chief/Test Pilot (Arrogant, Over-Opinionated Know-It-All/Test Dummy)

ANN E-I-C Note: OK… serious apologies for dragging this out… but things are crazy here… we’ve hired some new people, we’re training aggressively, we have a stunning number of new clients, and business is… well, busy. I’ve been editing parts Four and Five and already have the final edit of Part Six underway. We take these reports VERY seriously… and based on some of the drivel I see (especially on YouTube) that tries to pass itself off as a so-called flight report or evaluation, we may be one of the few left, who do. So… without further delay, let’s get on with Part Three… Each seat adjusts easily, A small ball connected to a cable, close up and under the seat, acts as a seat release and then you shift your gluteus maximus (and some of ours are more maximus than others) until yo

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx Collects Significant Amount of Asteroid

Now They're Trying To Keep It All From Leaking Away

Two days after touching down on asteroid Bennu, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission team received on Thursday, Oct. 22, images that confirm the spacecraft has collected more than enough material to meet one of its main mission requirements – acquiring at least 2 ounces (60 grams) of the asteroid’s surface material. The spacecraft captured images of the sample collector head as it moved through several different positions. In reviewing these images, the OSIRIS-REx team noticed both that the head appeared to be full of asteroid particles, and that some of these particles appeared to be escaping slowly from the sample collector, called the Touch-And-Go Sample Acquisition Mechanism (TAGSAM) head. They suspect bits of material are passing through small gaps where a mylar flap – the collector’s “lid” – is slightly wedged open by larger rocks.
